Société des Rambleneurs: The Summer 2021 Challenge (1 July-15 August)

Urban Adventure League

Register here!

Once again, I’m back with another challenge that gets you membership into a club! The challenge will happen for about six weeks, starting on Thursday July 1st, 2021 and ending on Sunday August 15th. This challenge is all about sharing the art oframbleneuring.

What is Rambleneuring?

No, it’s not “randonneuring”, where one has to self-sufficiently ride a number of miles in a certain time frame. To heck with that. This is all aboutgoing slow and appreciating the journey.This one’s about takingmore timethan you think you’ll need. You think you can do those ten miles in an hour? How about doing it in two instead! You like riding the direct route? How about trying the indirect route instead!

Rambleneuring is a great way to discover the world around you. It’s not about getting from Point A to Point B, it’s what’s along the way…

Another excursion to the Long Beach Peninsula: 21-25 April 2021

Emee and I brought three speeds to the beach!

Urban Adventure League

A three speed on the beach. Long Beach, WA. 22 April 2021. Olympus 35RD/Kodak Portra 400.

As I’ve stated previously, the Long Beach Peninsula in Washington state has become a favorite destination of Emee and myself: beautiful but fairly quiet, as Portlanders end up hitting the Northwest Oregon coast instead, and a bit too far away for the Seattleites. We tend to hit up the peninsula a few times a year when we want a taste of the Pacific Ocean. We had been out there twice in 2020, once around my birthday in August and then again in October. A trip out that way was due, so we loaded the van and headed west.

We spent the first two nights (Wednesday April 21st and Thursday April 22nd) at a hotel overlooking the ocean in the town of Long Beach. The Discovery Trail passed right out our back door, and…
